About Me

After spending the past 17 years in the Midwest, my family and I are excited to finally move down to Northeast Florida and call St. John's County home. I am married and have two incredible daughters. I treasure every moment spent with my wife and daughters, whether it's walking down the beaches, playing in the park or enjoying story time at the local library.

I always knew that I wanted to be a medical professional. My father is my role model for my career, as I grew up seeing him provide dedicated patient care as a neurosurgeon. I believe building a trusting relationship with patients is the foundation of patient-centered care. I strive to make mutually agreed medical decisions with my patients through open communication. It's imperative to work hand-in-hand with my patients, empowering them with knowledge and supporting their unique health goals.
